My name is David aka DataDragon. I was introduced to coins and currency at an early age as my father was an executive at a branch of the US Dept of the Treasury. I was able to visit the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the US Mint and regularly had error coins, shredded currency, uncut currency sheets, and of course proof and uncirculated sets as gifts at that time. There were also some great coin shops in the area, one is still in business with the same owner. for at least 40 years plus now. My life took a different direction as also my interests went into other areas, but when my father passed away some years back it has always been a thought to get back involved and I have been doing that as time permits.

Apparently I need to rev a delorean up to 88 miles per hour (141.6 km/h),a la the movie back to the future which will activate the flux capacitor to make some different choices, as for one thing nearly everything I had as a kid is now selling as a vintage collectible on ebay worth good money.. I have a good mix of knowledge I might be able to share here and there and own a number of books for reference, but also new in some ways so hopefully the community will be able to fill in the gaps in my learning in those areas as well.

Hello and welcome.

Just remember, those old toys and comic books are only valuable collectors items now, because 99% of the parents of the kids of that age simply threw out that junk when their kid left home.

If everybody had kept them, then (a) everyone who got nostalgic for their lost childhood and wanted one would still have one, reducing demand, and (b) there's be a lot more of them sitting around in the antique shops, increasing supply. Combining these two facts would mean they wouldn't have become rare and valuable collectors items today.
